Sleep well every night

Strong sleep patters are one of the biggest indicators of people who achieve exceptional longevity living into their 90’s and beyond with good health and strong quality of life. 

Our guide to sleep

Sleep is essential for growth and repair and affects both physical and mental health. It is also critical for maintaining hormonal and neurotransmitter balance and disruption of either can lead to a vicious cycle with imbalances leading to further sleep disturbance.

Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to mental health and mood disorders, weight gain, increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke as well as increased illness duration. Optimal sleep is also needed for a strong immune system and to protect against inflammation. All in all, sleep appears to be essential for just about every function in the body.

Nurturing the body with the right foods, alongside exceptional quality raw, organic supplements can encourage a restful night’s sleep – while giving us the very best support for the day ahead.

The endocannabinoid system and sleep

Our endocannabinoid system has been found to modulate our sleep-wake cycle as well as sleep quality and regulate the stability of the various sleep stages. 

We know for example that blocking one of the cannabinoid receptors (CB1) decreases sleep and that endocannabinoids (cannabinoids produced by your body) induce REM and NREM sleep.

How to incorporate Spirit of Hemp into your sleep routine

 

Our full spectrum oils including CBD, CBDA & terpenes can help maintain optimal functioning of the endocannabinoid system by reducing breakdown and re-uptake of your endocannabinoids.

We recommend taking our CBD supplements in the morning or throughout the day which helps feed the endocannabinoid system. The ECS in turn maintains optimal neurotransmitter functioning which can support good sleep.

It’s also important to take the supplements regularly i.e. daily and around the same time each day to get into a good routine and maintain a rhythm. In order to find the best dose for you, you will receive our usage guide and sleep tracker with every bottle of oil which will help you to track your symptoms, refine your dosage and achieve success.

 

Organic Pure Hemp Tea

Next have our Organic Pure Hemp Tea in the evenings or if your fancy something a bit more indulgent try a creamy Hemp latte with our Ceremonial Tea and plant milk of your choice. Our customers tell us this is very relaxing and they love it for a great night’s sleep.

Immune Range

The body responds well to habits in the evening and creating and following a routine can trigger your body to release the hormones which help you fall asleep. You may want to start by taking a warm bath and using one of our topicals for added relaxation such as the Immune Balm as an all-over body balm or our Immune Body Oil.

These are also particularly calming when rubbed into your chest or feet just before bedtime. It’s not just the CBD in our balm and oil but our unique blend of essential oils. Cannabis essential oil contains terpenes such as linalool, also found in lavender and myrcene also found in hops. The beautiful smell will soon have you drifting off.

Finally don’t overexcite your brain just before bedtime; Some light reading for 30-60 minutes is the best way to ensure you’ll sleep well.
